Hi everyone:

I dont know the price range for programs, but if anybody is interested, just make me a best offer. Thanks.

Using a tool known as lynx, I successfully dumped the contents of a webpage into a neat and well-arranged textfile (check out the attachment). In the dump as you can see, it grouped the abstracts on top and then the references(html links) below.

I want a program that will perform a search (lets say "galaxy") on the textfile and find abstracts that contain the word. Then it will redirect the link to the abstract into another file.

Example, I have pasted some parts of logfile.txt. In the example below, the system will realize that the first abstract contained "galaxy", and then it will either grep out the number from that line that begins with "astro-ph" and then match the [1] with the [1] in the references and send the html link to an output file or email.

Anybody that wants to tackle this and needs further explanation, please feel free to email me at I will match any price out there and more if work is done before the end of July. Thanks

Hello, if you still need help with this project, I am interested. Can you give me a little more info? What platform are you running? Would this be a command line tool, launched from a web page, etc? Did you want to create a text file at the end, or a web page, etc?

I can hammer out a quote for you, if you are interested. About me: I currently work at a hospital developing scripts to parse mass spectrometry data from results files, as well as front-end, web-based viewers for analyses of results. I can send you a link if you would like to see some of the front-end work. Parsing all kinds of files and morphing them into something usable is my forte.

Email me at if interested. Thanks.
